Khao Phing Kan is a pair of islands on the west coast of Thailand, in the Phang Nga Bay, Andaman Sea. About 40 metres (130 ft) from its shores lies a 20 metres (66 ft) tall islet Ko Tapu (the rock you see in the above postcard). The island is a part of the Ao Phang Nga National Park. Since 1974, when it was featured in the James Bond movie The Man with the Golden Gun, it is popularly called James Bond Island.

Oh wow. This card and stamp are so cool. I'm a fan of James Bond movies, especially the older ones with Roger Moore.

We like the old Bond, and the new Bond. Some of them in the middle, not so much.
